Dave Gorman, Roy Chubby Brown, Ed Byrne, Josh Widdicombe and Milton will be pushing for laughs at the Grand Theatre’s comedy 

Milton, a Mock the Week regular, will take the audience on a madcap journey as he follows in the footsteps of his great-uncle.

The Temple of Daft is unlike previous shows, but there are still lots of ridiculous gags as well as the trademark multi-
coloured shirts and big hair.

Milton, the man who can cram in up to 250 gags a night, will transform into Indiana Jones with his trademark stetson hat and whip.

“This tour loosely, and I say loosely, follows a kind of adventure-archaeology type story,” said Milton.

“It started off with me 
noticing that I had the same surname as Indiana Jones.

“I follow my great-uncle, Sir Randolph Digby Jones. He’s an explorer – I quite like warming the audience up with an obscure character.”

Milton explains he can spend hours writing and discarding jokes, but what often works is improvisation.

He said: “After all this time, I’m thinking ‘I’ve written the best joke ever’, and I go and do it and it just doesn’t work. However, the thing I improvise off the back of it does work.”

Milton is at Lancaster Grand Theatre on Tuesday November 10 at 8pm.
